300 make it to video July 31, 2007

This year’s first $200 million hit was a marriage of ancient history and modern Hollywood bloodshed, filtered through the visual wizardry of computer-generated animation.

The adaptation of Frank Miller’s graphic novel combines live-action actors with surrounding backgrounds added later through digital imagery, a process similar to that used on the earlier rendition of Miller’s Sin City. Gerard Butler stars as Leonidas, the Greek King who leads a hopelessly outnumbered band of 300 Spartans against a marauding Persian army at the battle of Thermopylae.

The movie comes in a bare-bones single DVD edition or a two-disc DVD set. Extras on the two-disc include additional scenes, background segments on the actors and their characters and commentary with director Zack Snyder.
